A poem by a finishing client

Is CBT for Me?
Read a book or take a pill
Am I really ill?
Mindfullness and CBT..
Is that really for me?
Take some time to take control
Tame the chimp and become whole
Your mind is strong and so are you
You can beat it just like flu
Cortisol and Adrenalin
Make them friends, nor a foe within
Will I beat my ill
Oh YES I certainly will!
